Hamiltons Ice Sculptures

 

 

Parties, launches, press calls, promotions - Hamiltons can create almost anything from ice that will look sensational and cause a stir. What's more, because they do not mould any of their ice, they guarantee something truly different - a unique original of the highest hand sculpted quality.

Ice is an extremely technical medium to work with - volatile, changeable, and beautiful. To ensure maximum impact, perfectly clear ice is carefully produced in the studio before being sculpted with the finest Japanese Samurai chisels. Starting with water and ultimately returning to water, every aspect of each piece of work is carefully controlled and managed.

The possibilities are limitless, and Hamiltons make a point of working closely with clients on ideas and specifications to make sure that each ice sculpture precisely meets the requirements of the event.
